Bannon out as chairperson of Breitbart News, loses radio show

In a statement, Trump said Bannon has nothing to do with his presidency and has "lost his mind". "The President pointed to that and also pointed that Mr Bannon is not in it for the country but instead in it for himself".

Bannon had served as Breitbart's executive chairman since 2012.

The announcement completes what has been a shockingly fast fall from power for Bannon, who had hoped to use Breitbart, in concert with a new political action committee, to fund insurgent conservative challengers to mainstream Republicans in 2018 congressional races. He's also losing his daily show on the conservative talk station on satellite radio network SiriusXM.

In an effort to try to fix the damage from the book, Bannon said his "treasonous" comment was directed at a former Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort, who also attended the meeting at Trump Tower.

A report on the Breitbart website quotes Bannon saying, "I'm proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform".

Neither Bannon nor a spokesperson for Breitbart immediately responded to a request for comment.

"Bannon died of his own sword", said Roger Stone, a long-time Trump friend.

Trump has lashed out at Bannon for comments made in an explosive new book that questions the president's fitness for office.
